nariengoldentipsNarien Teas is another company that is new to me. This is one of my favorite aspects of Teaviews…becoming acquainted with so many of the wonderful tea companies out there! My sample includes beautiful black leaves generously mixed with the lovely golden tips. As I have stated before, my personal preference in teas changes often. Right now I am in the midst of a pure black tea phase and am enjoying the subtle differences that can be distinguished when the tea is not paired with additional ingredients.

The brewed leaves open up quite nicely and create a dark amber liquid. I was having a difficult time coming up with a description of the aroma until I tasted it. To me, Narien’s Yunnan Golden Tips has a slightly smoky taste to it, which I was then able to identify as similar to the aroma. I’m not implying that this comes anywhere near the bold, in your face smokiness of a Lapsang Souchong, but it is ever so lightly reminiscent. It is very smooth and leaves a hint of aftertaste that I find very appealing. I enjoyed this very much on its own as the addition of sweetener and/or cream didn’t seem necessary, although it is probably strong enough to hold up to either or both well. The leaves held up quite well for a second infusion. The smokiness seemed a little more pronounced in the aroma than in the taste on the second cup. This is a delicious cup that is just different enough from similar brands that I would certainly recommend it.

Find this and many other top-quality teas at Narien Teas, Inc..
